If you want to do something a bit different for Christmas this year, you may be thinking of new ways to display the same old Christmas decorations that you have been using for years. Instead of getting those things out, leave them in the closet and come up with some new ideas.
December is a great time of year to find things to decorate with, whether those things are related to the holidays or not. Christmas ornaments are not just for your tree, as they can be versatile objects to make your own decorations for the holidays and even for the rest of the year.
The best thing about decorating with Christmas ornaments is that they come in just about any color you can think of for your holiday season, and any other season of the year. If you find a store or a web site that sells ornaments for a good price and have a huge variety, you can get any color of the rainbow and sixteen shades of those colors as well.
You can choose a different color to use on your tree every year if you want to. Not only can you get every color of Christmas ornaments, you can also get silvers, golds, and other metallics as well. Some have glitter, and some are matte in finish.
Besides using Christmas ornaments on your tree, you can also hang them across the top of doorways in your home. Hang any size you wish in a single line, as long as they are high enough so that no one is going to get an ornament in the eye each time they walk through that doorway.
You can hang them from simple string, or you can use colored ribbons. You could also hang some tree tinsel across the doorway and then hang the ornaments from that. It is a simple yet festive way to announce that Christmas is on the way.
You can also buy some large glass vases with wide tops to fill with Christmas ornaments. This is a nice centerpiece that you can do for Christmas, or you can do it for the rest of the year in various areas of your home. You can choose to get different Christmas ornaments in various sizes and colors. You can get some with a matte finish and some that shine.
Mix them up for a great decorative look. You can also put some shiny tinsel in with the ornaments or anything else you can think of that could fill in some of the spaces between the ornaments. You can also leave them as is if you like the way that they look.
